My 9y.o. son and 8y.o son are making cartridge displays as state fair entries for Cub Scouts. We has several calibers already, but they want as many as possible. If anyone has an empty case or two that they would be willing to part with in traditional rifle and pistol calibers and different variants, my boys would be very excited and grateful. Just post here what you would be willing to donate (we're only looking for one case in each caliber), and I will IM/email you. This started out as my oldest's project, but we've had enough responses that we can now split it so my 2nd son can join in the fun.

Here is a list of what we already have or is being sent by some other folks:

Good luck however.

10mm Auto
.44 Rem Mag (Nickel or Brass, your choice)

I also have some odd ball calibers not on your list, if you would like them. I can also throw in all the 7.62X51 with H&K Fluting you want. HAHAHA!!!


All the rest that I have on your list, I do not have enough of to share, esp. the .50 BMG (reloading, mind you...hahahaha!!!)

Let me know, I can send them Monday.
Link Posted: 6/20/2008 6:11:30 PM EST
Come on people, no short magnums? What is the world coming to? Of course this is in addition to nearly everything else he has mentioned. I have 300 WSM and 270 WSM. Having been a brass dealer on eBay before they ended brass sales I may have a few more I could add to the cause. Just email me an address of where to send the empty casings.

Maybe I should make the post more clear: If it's listed, we do not need it. If you have a rifle or handgun caliber that is not listed, then we're interested in adding it to the display.

I own .223, 6.8SPC, 9mm, .38, .357Mag, so I listed those. Some folks have sent .270, .500S&W, .458Win Mag, 7mm Mag already, and some have pledged to send .338 Lapua (mailed this morning), .25-06, etc., that haven't been mailed yet.

He, no problem! If you run into anyone who has something not listed (.17Mach2 or whatever it is, .50AE, etc.), then please let me know.



ETA: Skg_Mre_Lght, uscombatdiver... emails sent.

Loonybin,

I can contribute: .204 Ruger, 38-55, 375 Win, 357 Max, 7 TCU, 6 PPC, 30 Herrett (reformed from 30-30), and possibly others.

Would you like them as an empty case with a bullet seated, or just an empty case? Please send me a PM with your mailing address.

John

Okay, I can offer you some 7.65 Argentine, .22-250. I will check with my friend that has quite the WWII gun collection to see what he has.

I'll send you a 5.7x28, .22 Hornet, .300 WinMag, .280 Rem, .50AE, .41 Mag and .32ACP if you want them.

Send me an IM to let me know and I'll have them out in tomorrow's mail.

Edit: I see you already have the 5.7 and .32ACP- the rest are still available.

Perfect! IM sent.

7mm TCU here (used in BOTH handguns and rifles).
Also, the non-evil 9x21 for Italian citizens.

Send me an email...

Chris

PS - we'll need update with pics of the displays.

7-30 Waters maybe? All my other stuff is common.

You could list it as a rifle and a pistol handgun cartridge.

Thank you! The cases you sent arrived today, also. The boys were in awe of having an authentic case from the time of WW2. Do all 8x56R cases have a Nazi emblem on them? Maybe Michael should put the international rounds he has in a special section (Carcano, Swiss, Swedish, Jap, Austrian, Australian, Russian, etc.).
Link Posted: 7/1/2008 4:22:24 PM EST
I can supply you with a few handgun cases.

Just send me an IM with your address.

I can send you

.38 special (have to verify that I have this)
9mm Luger
357 SIG (have to verify that I have this)
.357 mag
.40 S&W
10mm Auto
.44 Magnum (have to verify that I have this)
.45ACP

I believe that I have all of them.

They arrived Saturday. The wife and boys left on Sunday for NE, so Saturday and yesterday were a bit busy. I have about 6 people I need to IM about the cases they sent and get the list updated. That's on top of the "honey do" list that my better half left me!

I have a .17 Remington if you want. Its the factory .17/223, not the .17 Fireball (.17/221 Fireball)

I didn't see it listed, give me a shout if you want it.

I use to have a .25 super (25-08), your welcome to it, if I can find it.
Link Posted: 7/8/2008 9:27:11 AM EST
Just remembered, my cousin has a .17 Fireball that I might be able to get also.

The boys got back from the grandparents' house today. Here are a couple of pics of them sorting through the brass. This is about 2/3 to 3/4 of what we have! You all have been so generous!
